About Author

Born in 1966, Shechen Rabjam is an accomplished Tibetan Buddhist teacher. The grandson and spiritual heir of the great twentieth-century meditation master Dilgo Khyentse, Rabjam is the abbot of Shechen monasteries in Nepal and India and the Shechen Orgyan Chozong Nunnery in Bhutan. He is the seventh in the line of the Rabjam succession. Shechen Rabjam was raised by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and attended almost every teaching, drupchen, and empowerment that he gave during twenty-five years, and today holds this unbroken lineage. He is maintaining the authentic Tibetan Buddhist tradition as taught to him by his grandfather in combination with a modern interest in the needs of the community and its individuals.
